Case Accepted/Routed to Nebraska

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I sent in my daughter and husbands I-130's last week, we all live just outside of Toronto Canada. I received an email today saying that my case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing. Even though the Montreal Canada Embassy is closer. Does this mean that when my husband has the interview that we will have to go down to Nebraska?

I-130's are processed by USCIS in the US, not at the foreign consulates. After approval, everything is sent to the National Visa Center, which will contact you and request further documents for visa pre-processing. After that everything is sent to the consulate in Canada where he will then apply for the visa and have the visa interview.

There are 3 different steps for the CR1 visa. 

- The first, which you are currently on, is when your case is assigned to a USCIS service center. In your case, Nebraska. It will take about 6 months to approve your petition. 

- Second phase is when your case is sent to the NVC. It’s taking about 11 weeks after they receive the required documents to process. 

- Third phase your case will be sent to the embassy for an interview. 

 

I believe it’s taking about 12 months to complete a CR1 visa right now.

Well sadly her application is sent to Nebraska they are 2-3 months behind others and taking 9-10 months  just for approval  ( 1st step ) 

So your entire process for Nebraska is roughly 13-16 months
